Connected to a person
Attached to a soul
People attracting people
Joined together by fate
With no place to go

Running and stopping
Short of the gap
People needing structure
To find their way back

No access to be found
Everything has a steep ridge
People everywhere sliding down
Desperately in need of a Bridge

Reality Fraud

Starting to question
if reality is real
Society seated in a medicine cabinet
so nobody has to feel

The world has convinced the truth to lie
Manufactured tears produced
so no one has to cry
Everyone banking off yesterday's credit
so nobody has to go out and try

Walking plastic seems to be fine
Cowards choosing surgery
to put in a spine

I stay real and continue to live
You sold out 
and refused to give

Riding along the open road
as it bends, rises, and falls
Watching the wind push fields of grass
back and forth from short to tall

I watched a bird
paint the top of a tree green
He injected colors with his beak
Just like a needle
connects heroin to a dope fiend

My eyes now scanning the panorama
from up and down
to left and right
The clouds pulsating like a heartbeat
as they carousel around the broken sunlight

Domesticated Debt

Living good in a certain way
Never show your real cards
So the naysayers can never say

Living a little less now than earlier before
People start to notice a change of pace
Eating crumbs off a delinquent floor

Living bad now and off the taxpayer's dime
Bills formed a mountain of domestic debt
Materials own your freedom and kidnapped your time

Faux Celebrity

People often talk about
the heat and torture of hell
I'm currently living in one
with the only excitement here daily
is the Courthouse Bell

Politics hidden like a stitch
People wearing costumes camouflaged
to look like the rich

Last names worn as a badge of fame
Fake celebrities walking amongst
the poor people
While their banking accounts are the same
